Kelly v. Bridgeport
In Kelly v. Bridgeport, 61 Conn. App. 9, 762 A.2d 480 (2000), cert. denied, 255 Conn. 933, 767 A.2d 104 (2001) the Court held that "construing the statutes as they existed at the time of the plaintiff's injury, we conclude that the term 'compensation payments' as used in 31-284b (a) does not include payments for medical care after the indemnity compensation period has ceased.
The statute mandates that an employer is required to continue insurance benefits only while an employee is receiving 'compensation payments' for disability under the Workers' Compensation Act." 61 Conn. App. at 16-17.
